Tom Higgins Poems
Fatty Bum Bum
How did I end up in this state?
I'm always fighting with my weight,
I'd like to put it down to fate,
but that ain't honest!
I know for sure what I do wrong,
I've known the truth all along,
but I always sing a different song,
and that ain't honest!
I've tried to blame my family,
for passing the fat gene down to me,
and making me a big fat'B',
but that ain't honest.
So now I'm gonna face the fact,
I have to make me a slimming pact,
and with exercise I must react.
Now, that is honest!
Here We Go Again
The planes are in the air again
I learned of this from CNN,
they're off to kill Ghadaffi's men
and make old Muhamar think again.
But bombs and missiles cannot choose,
who will win or who will lose.
They can only make people die,
more mothers left behind to cry.
